Fair enough. Sorry for the mixup.

I guess I'm just rather tired of hearing the term slung about in reference to pretty much anything, and you were the unfortunate to take the hit for it. Again, my apologies for the friendly fire if you are indeed not that sort of person.

Yeah, kindly explain moral degeneracy.

Also, these bits should be banned. People come here to get away from real life, pretty sure they don’t want to be bothered with it in-game.

Real Legos yes. A virtual Lego knock-off from 2006 that doesn't have any original popular games or a free currency for kids to get customization options for their character anymore? Not so much.

As a Roblox player, I totally agree. Some of it is based on a few games/movies/books/etc, but a good lot of these games are original and are Roblox unique.

How would you feel if people didn't feel morally restrained against killing your wife (and they have a death wish in this so don't care about the consequences)?

Yea, but not that many are popular anymore. Obbies are more or less the same, tycoons used to be original, then everyone started copy/pasting the same game with a different title. RPs are just...bleh, I guess the only originals that are actually good would be murder mystery and maybe phantom forces.

I wouldn't care because there are utilitarian reasons for banning murder in society that serve as adequate deterrent.

Normative morals are not the only thing preventing violent anarchy.

This argument seems too far of a comparison to “moral degeneracy” in a game.
